Lecture: Soviet Montage

This lecture by Ian Christie will precede the annual Moving Image Arts showcase in Brunswick Moviebowl on Wednesday, November 22. 

10am

In the 1920s a visionary group of Russian filmmakers that included Sergei Eisenstein, Dziga Vertov, Vsevolod Pudovkin and Alexander Dovzhenko developed a new approach to cinematic storytelling. Based on the principle that editing is the foundation of film art, Soviet Montage is one of the most significant aesthetic movements in the history of the cinema.

Professor Ian Christie, author of two books on Eisenstein and a frequent contributor to Foyle Film Festival, will discuss how the revolution inspired new ways of thinking about cinema that still influence film culture today.
